The palace is impressive like everything in Italy. Awesome paintings, huge weapon collection. Breathtaking. But like everywhere else in Italy it’s let down by their staff and signage. Rude staff in the cafe. Ticket staff do not bother to explain anything to tourists. Or seem...More

This is a special place to visit. We had a tour through Walks of Italy (highly recommend) and were blown away by the beauty and grandness of the building, art, and decor. A must visit in Venice!

Such beautiful paintings all over this palace. Try and go on a guided tour so that you can learn some of the stories from Venetians about their past government and stories within the palace. There are secret passages and so many paintings to be discussed!...More

The Doge's Palace was a great view of what life was like in Venice. We loved the art work, the gilded halls, the weapons room and tapestries.

We had been warned about the queues here but in the early afternoon in mid December there were none. The rooms are jaw dropping with paintings and gold decor. Then you cross the Bridge of Sighs and wander round several floors of prison cells before...More

We arrived at about 9am on Saturday morning and there was no queue and the palace remained fairly quiet throughout our visit. Interiors are stunning, and the courtyard is lovely too. When the church bells ring they bounce off the walls - very atmospheric. We...More

Hello Wendy, The pass could save you 2 hours wait time at St Marks. Or Doge’s Palace. Try for a guided tour at the Doge’s PALACE. At smaller museums you will probably not need a pass.Cheers
